Experience the return of scallop fishing boats to the Port d’Armor

Ready for an authentic immersion in a traditional Breton port?

Authentic immersion in the fishing port of Saint-Quay-Portrieux, known as the scallop capital of Brittany.

An unmissable experience!

It is 10:30 a.m. and just over 3 degrees at the Port d’Armor. I shiver in my hooded down jacket as I wait patiently for the fishermen to return from sea. My cheeks are turning red with the cold, but I feel a sense of excitement.

Far in the distance, the quiet rumble of an engine breaks the silence and the lights of a fishing boat shine through the fog. Soon after, the trawler is followed by several others: Bruant, Odyssée, Baradoz, Amphitrite, Discovery…

A buzzing atmosphere 

From the quayside, I can see the bags stuffed full with shiny and fresh scallops.

The sailors in the yellow jackets and tall boots bring them out in a well-rehearsed ballet. The mood is energetic and joyful. In no time at all, the bags are loaded onto pallets for the forklift truck to move them inside the auction market.

In two hours, the precious catch will be sold to wholesalers.

For the love of shells 

I take a deep breath of the bracing sea air, enjoying every minute of this vibrant atmosphere: the scallop-filled decks, the colourful reflections of the boats in the water, the squawk of seagulls ...

It is 11:30 a.m. already, and my stomach starts rumbling.

It’s scallop tasting time!
